OKLAHOMA CITY — Utah Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell has scored more points in his first two playoff games than any guard in history — topping Michael Jordan.

Mitchell scored a combined 55 points in the Jazz’s first two games against the Thunder, pouring in 27 points in Game 1 and and 28 in Game 2. The Jazz tied up the first-round Western Conference matchup at 1-1 with a 102-95 road victory Wednesday night.

According to Elias, Mitchell becomes just the second rookie in league history to achieve that feat. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was the other.

Mitchell topped the 53 points Jordan put up in his first two playoff games in 1985.
